8 Nights Travel Photography - Circle of Iceland in Autumn (Dep: 04 Oct 20) by David Lawrence


Join David Lawrence Lim, Instructor for Canon Imaging Academy Singapore, on this small intimate photography group to Iceland! On the tour, you will be photographing the most iconic and photographed sites in Iceland such as Snaefellsnes Peninsula, the waterfalls of the South Coast and Joklsarlon glacier lagoon, and if we are lucky, the awe-inspiring Northern Lights! Having worked on film, video and photography sets, Lawrence has garnered a wealth of experience in all three genres, with special fondness for lighting. Lighting, whether natural or artificial, is the key to an inspiring image. He has captured a multitude of life's most memorable moments. His photographys have been published in various magazines, while his videos can be seen on TV. The way he sees it, an image - still or moving, fabricated or documented - is all about reflecting personal vision and aspiration

We will stops in the town of Borgarnes, Gerðuberg (home to a beautiful belt of basalt columns in impossibly geometric shapes) Arnarstapi (fishing village where you‘ll be able to photograph the rugged wilderness of the coastline, where jagged cliffs and unusual rock formations act as spectacular foregrounds ) and Hellnar villages (if the weather is good, you can walk between the two villages), Djúpalónssandur (a black-pebbled beach offers stark views out to the ocean, hair raising rock formation and fascinating histories of shipwrecks!

We will start the day with Mount Kirkjufell, easily one of Iceland's most beautiful elevations and a staunch favourite of landscape photographers. It’s known for its almost perfect cone-shaped form, and the surrounding waterfall, rivers and hills make this venue a perfect photographer’s paradise.
